For appointment of power structures heads in Armenia, criteria will  be applied that meet the requirements of candidates for deputies or  members of the government

ArmInfo.For appointment of senior officials, as well as other employees of law enforcement agencies, in Armenia criteria will be applied that meet the  requirements put forward to candidates for MPs or members of the  government. At its September 16 sitting, the RA National Assembly  amended the law "On Service in the National Security Bodies" and in  the package of related laws.

According to Taron Simonyan, a member of the RA National Assembly  from the BrightArmenia faction, there have always been problems with  the appointment of the heads of the National Security Council and the  police. "During the discussion of the government structure, it was  repeatedly noted that these two structures are political bodies,  respectively, should be included in the government, however, all our  proposals were ignored. We suggest that the criteria be applied when  appointing senior officials, as well as other employees of law  enforcement agencies, which would meet the requirements put forward  before candidates for MPs or members of the government, " Taron  Simonyan said. According to him, the parliamentary system of  government implies equal requirements for deputies, members of the  government and judges, as well as employees of other structures. In  turn, the head of the My Step parliamentary faction Lilit Makunts  stated that the faction would vote for the adoption of the document  in the first reading, provided that the authors of the document will  hold discussions with the deputies from the ruling faction and the  government of Armenia by the second reading.

Earlier on his Facebook page, Edmon Marukyan noted that the package  proposed to exclude the posts of the Chief of Police and the Director  of the National Security Service from the list of posts of the Police  and National Security Agencies and be included in the list of  political posts.
